July 2020: CODE reports that the Southwark resturant is expanding downstairs into the Native space, to add 40 more seats and an outdoor terrace.

Harden's says

'Proper' Algarvian cuisine - the grilled, piri-piri seasoned 'chicken frango' familiar to many who holiday in Portugal - has arrived at London Bridge, along with regional charcuterie, octopus rice and pasteis de nata, plus natural Portuguese wines. The first floor dining space is a destination in itself, with vaulted ceilings, huge windows and a skylight. Arcade Food Theatre at the bottom of the Centrepoint tower has a sibling stall, called Casita do Frango.

“Nando’s eat your heart out”, say fans of the “real” Portuguese peri-peri grilled chicken “and very tasty sides” at this “fun if busy, busy, busy” (to the point of being “overwhelming”) duo near Borough Market and Shoreditch (of which the former is by far the most commented-on). It’s backed by MJMK (who also run Kol, Lisbetoa et al) and a first central London branch seating 200 is set to open in 2022 in Mayfair’s Heddon Street.

“Grilled chicken is the centrepiece” (frango means chicken in Portuguese) and is done in three different ways: peri peri, lemon, and garlic-and-oregano – at this “buzzing”, airy and artfully converted yearling, not far from Borough Market. “Sides, salads and especially the custard tarts are of a very high standard too, and service, like the room, is bright and cheery”. A sibling stall is now open in Centre Point’s Arcade Food Theatre, see also.
